Turns out Limp Bizkit isn’t the only band producer Ross Robinson is reuniting with in the studio. According to Blabbermouth, Sepultura has tapped Robinson to co-produce their next album with Steve Evetts. Robinson last worked with Sepultura on 1996’s Roots.
On the one hand, Sepultura working with Robinson again is good news since Roots proved to be the band’s most successful/mainstream album. At the same time, fans who were happy that Sepultura’s last album Kairos saw them returning to their thrash roots probably won’t be thrilled by this for the same reason. It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, though, that Monte Conner (former Roadrunner A&R who now runs Nuclear Blast’s U.S. imprint) was the one who suggested to Sepultura that they work with Robinson again.
The album will supposedly be tracked in June at Robinson’s studio in Venice, CA, and is due out later this year via Nuclear Blast Records.
